Productive meeting with King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud today to discuss heightened tensions in the region and the need to promote maritime security in the Strait of Hormuz. Freedom of navigation is paramount.

There are heroes among us who fight modern slavery every day. Pleased to honor this year’s   #TIPReportHeroes  , who have dedicated their lives to making a real difference in the lives of survivors of human trafficking.   #EndTrafficking

My discussions with Frederica Mogherini addressed a number of pressing issues, including Iran, on which the   #EU   and the U.S. must coordinate. Our Transatlantic partnership is vital to ensuring our mutual security and prosperity. We must work together to overcome the threats we all face.

At the U.S. Central Command today, we discussed the Iranian regime’s latest escalation, our continued efforts to defend the freedom of navigation and commerce, as well as ongoing Afghanistan and counter-terrorism operations.


Secretary Pompeo

We don’t want   #Iran   to get a nuclear weapon. We withdrew from the   #JCPOA   and are moving ourselves towards a set of policies which will convince Iran to behave like a normal nation.

On   #MemorialDay  , we humbly remember and honor the servicemen and women who gave their lives for our country and our ideals.

Visited Iraq and met with Prime Minister Adil Abd al-Mahdi and President Barham Salih to reinforce our friendship and to underline the need for Iraq to protect diplomatic facilities and Coalition personnel.

  #OperacionLibertad   is underway in   #Venezuela   & the world is watching.   @jguaido  ’s safety must be guaranteed. The Venezuelan people are demanding change, a peaceful democratic transition, & return to prosperity. It’s time for the illegitimate regime to step aside.   #EstamosUnidosVE  


The end.
